1.1. Power Napping Etiquette.
POWER NAP ATTIRE + SHOES: There is no preferred attire, as long as you are comfortable. A full-length shirt covering your belly button and shorts/pants are required for all power naps and classes. Our sessions are not physically intensive, so most any attire is appropriate. Since we are a barefoot studio, we ask that you please remove your shoes before entering the space and stick them in the storage nook. Please avoid wearing heavy perfumes or smoking beforehand. Other meditators and nappers may be allergic to such scents.
POWER NAP CHECK IN PROCEDURE: Please arrive 5 minutes early to power naps and make sure to check in at the iPad stand or with the recharj team. If you haven’t already online, you’ll sign a waiver. If you are not signed in 3 minutes prior to the power nap, your spot may be given away. Remember to wait outside the studio until the door is opened by the recharj team. Walking in while the door is closed may interfere with an existing class and is disruptul to fellow meditators and nappers. Thank you for your cooperation. Power naps are offered on a daily schedule Monday- Friday and are each 25 minutes in length. The studio door closes promptly at the beginning of each power nap and is locked until the power nap is over. Do not pull or bang on the door while a power nap is in session.
POWER NAP SETUP: Our staff will assist you in locating your napping cocoon (complete with a blanket, head pillow and eye pillow) and our recharj team will open/close the draperies. Lay back and relax as lights are dimmed and soothing sounds are played as you drift off to sleep for 25 minutes.
SNORING: If you are aware that you snore, please be mindful of this so as not to disturb other students in power naps or classes. If your snoring becomes excessive and/or disturbing to others, a member of the recharj team will come by and lightly tap you on the top of your feet to wake you up and let you know that you are snoring at a level that is disruptive to others in the nap or class. Feel free to adjust your head pillow as necessary to stop your snoring from continuing.
INJURIES: Please make sure to notify the instructor of any current injuries or ongoing trauma you are experiencing so they can help you take your seat, provide you with extra support, or lay down in a comfortable position for the duration of the power nap or class.
OTHER: Make sure your phone is turned off.
Choose the Cocoon of your preference and get comfortable. Cover yourself with the blanket and use the eye pillow.
Lay back and relax as lights are dimmed and soothing sounds are played as you drift off to sleep.
See you in 25 min!
